Nearly there!!!! Only 15 miles to go!! We can see the mighty hills of St
Lucia forming dark shadows in the haze ahead of us. Black and white skewer birds
are swooping down into the sea around us. Strangely none of us seem particularly
excited about landfall. We have been living on this small kingdom for the last
three weeks and we are not sure what to expect in St Lucia. One thing we are all
excited about – no more night watches!!! All looking forward to showers and
freshly laundered clothes, fresh fruit and an ice cold beer.
Several boats are around us and there is still that competitive instinct
that make some of us ( well me, really not my sub-alpha male fellow crew!) want
to pull out all stops and sneak past a few boats at the end.
I'm getting the camera ready for the arrival photos and the champagne is
chilling in the fridge!
